No restaurant in Austin surpasses Uchi. Just go. Listen to your waiter or sit at the sushi bar and watch the chefs prepare your food.

From the moment you walk into uchi and are offered a sample of a sushi roll, you know you're in a very special place. This is the pinnacle of a sushi restaurant, from the beautiful and knowledgeable servers to the freshest fish to the creative seasoning, everything is well thought out and executed perfectly. Happy hour is crowded but well... More

I am most certain that God manages the kitchen at Uchi. Yes. She truly does. There are tiny angel wings on the backs of all the servers and chefs. If you look closely, you will see them. Chris, our saintly server, was adorable, attentive and provided detailed explanations as we began our 12 course (yep...you read that right) Sushi dinner.... More

I came here in December for my birthday and had a wonderful time. As a sushi lover I have had a lot of sushi but never before have I had such inventive samplings. My husband and I ordered many different small plates and each one was delicious. The service was great as well and I would definitely recommend this restaurant.... More

I went twice back in January and it was amazing as always! There is pretty much always a wait, so make reservations early if you can. We don't usually plan that far in advance!

Uchi lives up to the hype, and in fact exceeds it. There's more to Uchi than the food--they create an outstanding experience that has kept me coming back for years.
